Abstract

In this paper comparative study of characteristic features of summer monsoon, viz. onset and withdrawal, synoptic situations causing heavy rainfall, average seasonal monsoon rainfall over the country and floods generated in Indian rivers in each monsoon season has been made on the basis of 11-years' data (1987 to 1997). It is shown that each monsoon season is quite unique in its behaviour and no two monsoons are alike.
